SOURCE: FM radio intermittent static on '95 volvo 940

Sounds like you either left something loose or lost a piece of shielding. Was there a filter on the antenna that you forgot to put back on?

Spin or replace the fuse as the old aluminum fuses build up corrosion and dont work, or work on and off.

If its an after market radio check by removing unit and checking for fuses in line.

I have a 750Li and for the past week have been having issues with the satellite radio. I have contacted Sirius they have check everything on their end. The sound goes away and the channel selection


if its jjust the sound and the title of song that goes away (not static) then yes id say have a look at your antenna , sometimes for folks that go thru a lot of auto car washes the antenna s develop a small leak thats near undetectable , except that signal comes and goes that is , yours should be easy removal using a small screwdriver , any sign of crust or water stains inside , replace it !!

Sirius radio problems


I would do the following, hoping one of them works.

1) DISCONNECT the power to the radio and SiriusXM unit to "clear" it. Then reconnect and ask Sirius to resend signat.

2) Ask Sirius to UNSUBCRIBE that radio so it is deactivated. Then, have them reactivate and resend programing signal.


3) Be sure your car is outside under clear sky when Sirius sends the program signal.


4) It is possible the antenna cable to your unit is loose at the connections and/or damaged. A weaker signal may get your stations, but may prevent the additional Navigational signals. Have the antenna checked thoroughly and tested. If car is still under warranty, this should be a covered diagnostic/repair.

5) Finally, be sure the correct Radio Serial Number is being activated. If your radio works, that is one service. But maybe they are putting a wrong number by some chance into the system to fix this one? For example, you have TWO radios in TWO cars. Are they sending the turn on signal to the WRONG radio? Not as farfetched as you might think.

Good luck!

Why do i only get 184 and no other stations


You need to put the van out in the open with the radio "ON" (car off) and leave it on CH184. Call the 800 (855-whatever) number and ask them to send a "refresh signal" to your radio after you give them the Serial number from channel 0. Wait about 20 minutes, you should eventually see an "updating" message on the display; then see if you get channel 5; if so, then you're good. Again. Car off; radio power on, van out in the open; call Sirius and ask for a 'refresh signal' for your serial number. You'll have to call during the day when they have customer service reps available. Good luck; call on your cellphone and they can walk you thru these same steps.

My 2008 ford focus sirius radio stopped working. sirius tried to reprogram, but it didn't work


Did Sirius resend a signal? If it is displaying their number it is likely that your subscription needs to be updated. The fact that it displays their info means it is likely receiving a signal. If it said "no tuner" or nothing at all, it would likely be the tuner. You can resend a signal online here:

If that does not work, replacement kits are available here:

Activated Sirius service, unit says "no channels available"


Turn the unit on for about 15 minutes. Cycle through the channels, starting from channel 1. You won't have to go through all of them, but this should get it working. If not, go to your account online, or call SIRIUS and have them refresh your signal.

My Sirius radio, factory installed in a 2008 VW R32, won't activate, even after a "soft boot". Sirius mentioned having the dealer do a "hard boot". What is that?


I hope this post finds everyone well who is having difficulties with Sirius Radio's trouble shooting advice to reactivate service. I tried to reactivated my service and had experienced all the problems that everyone has had on these forums. This is what works. It took me a lot of phone calls and I want to get the word out to everyone (regardless of Make, Model or Year of Vehicle)

First, a soft reboot does nothing and there is no such things as 'reseting' the electric system in your car. Second, there is no such thing as a 'hard' reboot to your sirius radio. All a soft reboot will get you is cold legs when you have to hold your car door open for 30 seconds in the middle of winter. All a hard reboot will do is cost you a lot of hard earned money at the dealership. Best case scenario is that your dealer replaces your entire radio and charges you $500+.

WHAT YOU NEED TO DO: Call Sirius Customer Service and ask for Technical Support. Explain to them you are having difficulty obtaining an activation signal. The technical support technician did the following (and it was the most intelligent thing I heard from Sirius)

1. Go turn on your Sirius Radio and tune to Channel 184.

2. The technician put a "dummy" ESN in on my account, refreshed and then re-entered my original ESN back into my account and then re-sent the activation signal. **NOTE** Make sure you write down your original ESN number before you ask to have them do step #2....there is no way for them to recover your original ESN if they put in the 'dummy' ESN and refresh.

3. Within 10 seconds of putting doing step #2, my Sirius Radio said, "Updating Channels" and worked great.

Takeaway from My Experience: I believe that once you let your Sirius Radio Service relapse and/or do not renew your subscription, a signal/frequency is sent to your radio to block service or reactivate your service. The problem must be an internal issue on Sirius where the only fix to stop this signal is to completely clear (or zero) out your original ESN, enter a dummy ESN, refresh and then re-enter your original ESN and then send the activation signal.

I hope this helps everyone.

NO SIGNAL all of a sudden. Gone. Lost.


Hey adam, check that antenna wire! It's probably pulling out at the antenna/magnet end. Adam, I checked that and sure enough, it was pulling out. So I put on a new antenna and problem solved! Thanks Adam!
